And now onto business ...

This page has some useful downloads.  Some of this software may work on a PC as well.  If you know of other PCjr software that belongs here, let me know.  I am not going to run a DOS shareware site or an abandonware site - if you need other programs to use on your PCjr, you are on your own.  No commercial software or copyrighted software (where the owner objects) will appear here.
